  1. Hello. 1 time of taking the super extra controller parts I kind of fixed it but I couldn't get it back together right without it being ergonomically weird. I know that Best Electronics California sells the gold set for the 5200 joystick buttons and keypads. I was wondering if there was a similar mod thatcould be done to Super Action Controllers?; I predict every couple years I have to re mail it, and I read that deep cleaning requires taking apart almost to the skeleton (the circuit board level), and read it has something to do with sandpapering off some foreign substance. Instead of mailing it every few years I wonder if there's a final solution for super extra controllers but he's just being unresponsive? Also one of the directions have fell off one of the four super extra controllers, because I could do 7 directions all except Northwest. I've opened one before and seen it has an 8 separate actuator pins, one for each Cardinal and diagonal. Does that mean that there are games that specifically support super action controls with tertiary directions, as in 16 way, where North plus Northeast equals NorthNorthEast? If that's not true or if it was meant to support 16 ways but no game actually took advantage of it, then that opens a couple of doors. what if the top joystick could be replaced by a more current arcade self stick either American or Japanese and be ambidextrous on the joystick housing. If all you need is 8 way and way to turn 8 way via 4 actuators to 8 separate actuators, and if the buttons can be replaced with "finger grip" buttons, then these suckers could go a lot longer without repair. Also eight separate actuators might give away to make a 16 way Intellivision joystick and turn eight ways plus the in-betweens into 16 ways of Intellivision, then the suprep should controller might be a combo stick Intellivision / ColecoVision / retro ambidextrous Fight Stick. I'm just spitballing night some ideas. Maybe someone can make something out of it.
  2. There are many disassembly/repair kits out there now, but so many use cheap components. What do you use and recommend? Which do you suggest we avoid?
  3. I have a "Mostly Working" coloecvision. If you supply power to it, it turns on. If you put in a cartridge, it reads it. The only problem is due to bad instruciotns from Adam's House, I permenantly ruined my Joyport 1 on the Colecovision, so I can't plug in any joystick. they told me to pull the port, so I pulled it apart, and it got ruined. I'm not getting much help from the repair shop, who told me to to find a non-working colecovision, and transplant the joyport. he says he can solder it for $25 -the $10 analysis fee. I asked if there is a generic equivalent part for the right angle Colecovision DB9 port? The repairman said there was none. I asked A couple companies whihc may have the piece, and they said they didn't know enough about the particular repair or the Colecoviison itself to answer the question. I'm trying to get the repairman on board. All he has to do is solder on a new 9-pin connector. But he insists on a genuine CV connector, becuase there is no part number on it, so he can't look up equivalents. I found this searching for a solder-on DB9 right angle connector: https://www.cablewholesale.com/specs/3530-14009.php?utm_source=GoogleShopping&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=3530-14009&utm_campaign=DB9%20Right%20Angle%20Female%20Connector%2C%20Solder%20Type&gclid=CjwKCAjw5ZPcBRBkEiwA-avvk6cT-8xUjIPMCP6SxL0hcXOUZuYkZJAbaXnnP17vGGB21YoWSrEwsRoCx1kQAvD_BwE $4 shipping plus <$1 for the cost of 1, plus I know it's not ruined. A lot less in cost and a lot more sure to work than a stereotypical non-working Colecovision. The only thing I don't know is whether it's compatible with a Colecovision.
  4. I have an original Centipede arcade machine that's been in my possession for close to two years now. My wife got a good deal on it since it lacks a monitor. Thing is, at this point no work has been done on it (I have no experience with this kind of thing), and honestly, I don't even know where to start. Google has been very little help. Does anyone know of any places in Northeast Florida that does repairs on arcade machines? I'd like to have someone that knows what they're doing work on it, but if I can't find someone, I may just end up selling it, as it's taking up space we could use.
  5. I just bought some paddle controllers, but they arent working properly. Neither of the paddles work, and only 1 button works. I've tried cleaning the contacts on the Atari and that didnt work. I tried blowing out the contact holes in the controller as well. I opened up the controller to look for loose wires but everything was in shape. Does anybody know what may be going on?
  6. I have a weird Atari paddle problem. On a known good 4 switch, one paddle moves when the button is pushed. Of course the paddle dial is not moving, just the signal sent from the pot is changing. Note that it moves less depending on the position of the paddle dial, but never goes away. Inside it looks ok. The cord doesn't have obvious damage, but I'm thinking that is probably the issue. The other paddle of the pair works great. Any thoughts?
  7. hi peeps, does anybody repair atari 1050 drives in the uk? thanks in advance

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask... I've got a wonky light sixer and don't really know enough about these things to tell what's wrong with it, if it can be fixed, or whether it needs to be junked. Is there a forum topic for that? Or are there people in the community who can take a look (for a price, of course)? I am in Brooklyn, so if anyone with skills/interest is in NYC maybe we could meet up? If there is a topic for this I apologize for misposting; feel free to move the post to a better location. thanks! david
